Hi there

Stupid question, but nonetheless:

Say I sign up for the iPhone 500 plan for 24 months, and in November Vodafone increase the data limit to 1GB. All current users on the iPhone 500 plan at that time will get the new data limit automatically at no extra cost right?

Cheers.

This is something that only Vodafone could answer and nothing posted in this forum could be "official" or used later as justification...

OK, what happens on current plans when the limits get increased then?

In fact I am sure you would get the increased limits... you are signing up for the plan itself, not the limits within it.

For all we know they could bring out completely new plans then.

Come on... I'm trying to tell myself maybe I can just get one of the plans and get the benefits of any changes down the track.

Help me out here!

At the risk of sounding like Mr. Negativity, we can't.

Only Vodafone can, and that's once any future plans / upgrades are released.

OK I hear you, but surely they won't shaft early adopters like that.

Assume that you won't be upgrade. When you sign a contract stating that you'll pay $X for X months with X MB, you need to anticipate that Vodafone may never upgrade your plan for free. This would be financially unwise on their part and they would only do this if public outrage came to a head.

Just like we are still limited to 600MB a month on Jetstream?

I take what you are saying though, the question is just when the upgrades happen...
